SPRITUAL DÉCOR: ISLAMIC WALL ART

Islamic art wall décor is a wondrous combination of grace, religion and art. The subtle yet majestic strokes in which the Arabic script is artistically written no doubt inspires awe; but the real, greater benefit must be derived from the meaning and the message of the text –ayats from the Holy Quran and sayings from the Hadith. Certainly, the main motive one should have while buying Islamic wall art frames is spiritual nourishment with a dash of aesthetic delight.

Even though the whole of the HoyQuran is replete with wisdom, we shall explore some of the verses which most people hang in their homes as Islamic art wall décor in varied forms – wall decals, coloured digital prints, embellished velvet fabric, traditional wall carpets, stainless steel frames or ceramic plates.

Each of these Quranic gems is imbued with depth and meaning, inspiring a sincere reader to make positive changes in life.

1.       ‘Alhamdulillah’

This Arabic zikr means ‘Praise be to Allah’ and is often inscribed on many Islamic wall art frames or decals.

“And remember when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you in favour. But if you deny indeed, my punishment is severe.’ [Quran: Chapter 14, Verse 7]

‘Alhamdulillah’ implies gratitude to the Almighty for all blessings in life. If you are stressing over workor family issues, remind yourself of the many blessings that Allah has bestowed on you – life, health, faith, security, shelter, freedom and many more, which we take for granted. An attitude of constant gratitude helps one stay positive in the face of daily stress or when struck with sudden calamity.

2.       ‘Masha Allah’

The of-repeated zikr, said especially when praising or appreciating a person, means ‘By the Will of Allah’. It implies that a person’s successes, for instance, a job promotion or an admission to a high-ranking institution, as well as his/her attractive physical attributes like lustrous hair or a striking smile, result from the ‘Will of Allah’. If an infant is cute and adorable, it is so because Allah has Willed him/her to be cute and adorable. When one remarks ‘Masha Allah’, he/she is acknowledging the Will of Allah in all good things in life. People also utter the phrase to protect the person being praised from the evil eye.

3.       ‘Bismillah-ir-Rahman-ir-Raheem’

This is the opening verse of the Quran, and all surahs of the Holy Book, except one, start with this ayatswhich is translated into English as ‘In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful’. The fact that the Word of Allah begins with this ayatitself implies its significance. One must recite this ayatbefore doing any deed, big or small, usual or special – whether it’s writing an exam, going for scuba diving or eating a regular meal.

Saying ‘Bismillah’ before performing a task makes one conscious of Allah and protects him from doing evil. It also means that Allah would provide His Succour in the task being carried out, and protect the person from Satan.

No doubt, Islamic artwall décor, consisting of spiritual gems from the Quran, canserve as a constant,frequent reminder of the Mercy and Blessings of Allah. Indeed, decoration of rooms with Islamic wall art frames is a wonderful way to do up your homes.
